A McDonald’s branch in Pittsburgh is apparently selling heroin.
Unfortunately for the franchis owner, one of the employees was secretly distributing bags of heroin to users. According to a police report, 26-year old Shantia Dennis of East Pittsburgh sold heroin through Happy Mean boxes, Yes, those boxes with those lovely toys on them.
Dennis wisely used the code words, “I’d like to order a toy.”
If a customer will ask that question, Dennis will forward them to the first window where the Happy Meal box containing heroin will be given to them. It is not yet clear if Dennis had an accomplice.
Police arranged a buy-bust operation after recieving a tip.
Undercover agents nabbed 60 bags of heroin - 10 from a Happy Meal box and an additional 50 bags from Dennis. Police also found a small dose of marijuana.
Dennis is now detained at the Allegheny County Jail with a $30,000 bail. She faces one count of criminal use of a communication facility, another count for prohibited acts of delivery, and one count of possession with intent to deliver.
The McDonald’s branch declined to comment on the report.
